AAUW Campus Action Projects
There are more science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) jobs than ever, but women remain severely underrepresented. Studies show that men are paid more and hired more often in engineering and computing careers than equally qualified women. That means the fields that are designing our future are missing the creativity, intellect, and drive of half the population.
It’s not adding up.
Want to create change on your campus?
Applications for the 2015–16
Campus Action Project grants
are available through
September 27, 2015.
College women, you can help put an end to the tired stereotypes and harmful biases that hold back your career ambitions. And AAUW is ready to stand with you. Women in engineering and computing have enormous social impact through real-world applications. It’s time to take action in your campus community to target the barriers that women and girls face in these spaces and to #addwomen. Help show your community that engineering and computing fields can and should be environments where women thrive.
It’s time to solve the equation.
How the Projects Work
The Campus Action Projects give students on 10–12 campuses up to $5,000 to put their ideas into action in spring 2016. CAP grant teams encourage and empower other students to put an end to the stereotypes and bias that women still face in engineering and computing.
